The AD610 ShowLink access point enables real-time remote control of all ShowLink-enabled Axient™ devices, including both digital and analog models. The access point allows comprehensive management of device parameters from the receiver or Wireless Workbench® using 2.4 GHz wireless network communication. All parameter changes occur without interruption to the performer.
Multiple access points can extend the operational range or increase the number of devices supported on the ShowLink network. The access point also features true diversity antenna inputs.

ShowLink channels that enable remote control of Axient devices operate in the 2.40 to 2.484 GHz portion of the RF spectrum in accordance with the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol. Devices that share the 2.4 GHz spectrum, including Wi-Fi, are manufactured to efficiently share the spectrum and cause minimal interference. Both ShowLink and Wi-Fi use "listen before talk" technology to transmit short message packets only when needed to conserve bandwidth. Available spectrum, low interference, and global availability make the 2.4 GHz spectrum an ideal choice for hosting ShowLink channels.
Within the 2.4 GHz spectrum, 16 channels are available for ShowLink communication. To ensure reliable communication, the access point contains an internal scanning radio that analyzes the 2.4 GHz spectrum hundreds of times per second. If interference is detected, the access point uses channel agility to automatically switch to a clear channel within the spectrum. All devices associated with the access point will continue to communicate uninterrupted on the new ShowLink channel. If ShowLink goes offline for any reason, audio transmission will not be interrupted.
The coverage area of the access point is approximately the same as the range of the linked device. Use the ShowLink Test feature in the receiver menu to map the boundaries of the coverage area. Multiple access points can be used to increase the coverage area or to expand coverage to multiple rooms.
A single access point supports up to 24 ShowLink-enabled Axient devices, including both Axient and Axient Digital models. Any ShowLink-enabled device within range of an active access point with available capacity will be automatically controlled by that access point. When multiple access points are used to increase device capacity or coverage area, device control is automatically divided between each access point. All changes in control between access points occur seamlessly and automatically, without requiring user intervention.
An access point with available capacity will automatically control linked devices that are within the coverage area. Multiple access points automatically self-manage to divide device control and maintain coverage. Transitions between access point control do not affect the transmission of the audio channel.
When interference is present from Wi-Fi or other devices sharing the spectrum, built-in channel agility automatically switches the access point and all controlled transmitters to a clear channel. Channel agility is able to avoid interference from most devices that operate in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, such as Wi-Fi or cell phones.
The ShowLink icon appears on the home screens of a linked transmitter and receiver to indicate that the transmitter is within range of an access point making remote control possible. If a device is beyond the range of the access point, or if the receiver is offline, the icon will disappear, indicating a loss of ShowLink control.
The access point is powered through Power Over Ethernet (PoE)-enabled network ports. If PoE is not available, use an external power supply.
The Shure Ethernet switch and Axient rack components offer network ports with Power over Ethernet (PoE). The network port powers the access point as long as the host component is powered on.
If Power over Ethernet (PoE) is not available, power the access point using an external power supply.
Networking the access point using a DHCP-enabled router automatically assigns an IP address, simplifying network setup. The network connection allows the access point to share data with networked components and enables wireless control of the devices. To manually assign an IP address to the access point, use Wireless Workbench.
Pressing the reset button located on the bottom of the housing restores the access point to the following settings:
Set a host ID on the AD610 to connect to an ADX5D portable receiver in network mode. An AD610 with a host ID set grants access to ADX5Ds with a matching client ID.
Repeat this process for any other AD610s you have on the network that you want to act as a gateway for an ADX5D.
Then, set the client ID on your ADX5D.
Using Wireless Workbench, you can do the following for your AD610.
Tip: The text color of the device ID for each transmitter in the Connected list indicates link quality:
Hovering the cursor over the Device ID displays link quality ranked from 5 to 1.
To adjust the power level, use Wireless Workbench. In locations with many competing 2.4 GHz sources, operating at a higher power level improves ShowLink performance and may extend range.
